On Thursday, October 29th, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento will host a landmark Virtual Gala for a night to celebrate 35 years of building and repairing homes and hope in the Greater Sacramento community. Long-time partner Bank of America will honor the milestone with a $1,000 match for each year celebrated, for a total of up to $35,000 in matching funds.
The annual fall Gala fundraiser hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento will look a little different than usual this October 29th. The sold-out black tie event typically hosts 400+ supporters for dinner, entertainment, a live auction, and a night to remember which raises over $300,000 to help Habitat build and repair homes for those in need. This year, the event will be hosted online via a virtual live link for supporters to watch, participate, and celebrate safely from home.
Habitat’s first-ever Virtual Gala celebrates a special milestone: 35 years since the organization’s founding in 1985 by community members with a heart for service and hope for a better tomorrow. The formerly all-volunteer organization has since grown to a 25-staff operation now serving over 3,000 individuals annually through home build, repair, and community projects.
The Virtual Gala will take place on October 29th at 6:00 – 7:00 pm via Online Live Link
12-year partner Bank of America has pledged a total $35,000 to match all donations made to Habitat from now through the night of the event. Over the years of partnership, Bank of America has contributed more than $250,000 and 1,000 volunteer hours to build and repair homes with Habitat in the Greater Sacramento community.
Says Habitat Development Director Laine Himmelmann, “We are so grateful to be partnering with Bank of America through this very special matching donation campaign for our Virtual Gala in honor of our 35 years of building hope and homes in the greater Sacramento region. We look forward joining hands with all our community partners on October 29th to help us meet our goal, which will enable us to keep building on a variety of projects including raising walls on our Mandolin Estates development!”
